Kevin Durant will sacrifice nearly $10 million in his next deal with the Golden State Warriors, and he was reportedly willing to go even lower if the situation called for it. Multiple reports on Monday indicated that Durant will sign a two-year, $53 million deal with the Warriors that includes an opt-out after the first year. Durant will make about $25 million in the first year when CBA rules entitled him to a maximum amount of $34.5 million. One of the main reasons Durant took less was to allow the Golden State to re-sign Andre Iguodala, but K.D. supposedly had a backup plan in mind. According to Sam Amick, Durant would have signed for even less to help the Warriors bring in Rudy Gay if Iguodala signed elsewhere.
